  • ABOUT THE CD

    Liam Lawtons collection, Light the Fire, is a lilting, melodic Celtic feast. Theres a marvelous mass setting with assembly parts that are so singable they seem to dance! The Gloria, gospel acclamation, and eucharistic acclamations are obviously drawn from a cultural tradition of communal singing. You cannot help but participate!

    "The Darkest Hour" was written to commemorate the 150th anniversary of the Great Famine, which plagued the Emerald Isle and resulted in the immigration of so many Irish to this country. Parishes commemorating this painful anniversary will want to make use of this haunting work. The title song, "Light the Fire," is an anthem to St. Brigid.
